Dear ....

Many thanks for the mail.

A slightly big liver usually does not mean aanything serious unless the liver function tests show some abnormal readings. So a LFT needs to be done. Like wise ultrasound evdience of gas in the stomach also does not mean anything. You will require an endoscopy test if not already done and i need to know the report. If you feel better while you take medicine denotes that you have some acidity problem. I suggest you continue the same medicine till you send me the reports i asked for. Taking these medicines for a long period of time will not cause any harm.

Thank you for the query.

It is hard to advice any medicine not knowing what needs to be treated. Before any medicine you need to have a diagnose. Your symptoms may be caused by acid reflux, peptic ulcer or even stomach cancer. It is very important for you to have upper GI endoscopy performed with Helicobacter Pylori test. If you do have peptic ulcer and this infection, it is necessary fro antibiotics and without it, your symptoms wont go away.
If no findings in endoscopy, and you do also suffer from constipations, blood or mucus in stool colonoscopy should be performed.

Hope this will help.
